Mumbai: In a boost for Indian investigating agencies, a special PMLA court here proclaimed absconding diamantaire Nirav Modi, one of the prime accused in the Rs 13,500 crore Punjab National Bank scam of 2017, as a ‘fugitive economic offender’ here on Thursday.

“With this, he becomes only the second accused so far under the Fugitive Economic Offenders Act (FEOA) to have been declared a ‘fugitive economic offender’ after another accused, Vijay Mallya,” Special Counsel for Enforcement Directorate (ED) Hiten Venegaonkar.

The significant order came a day after his uncle and co-accused in the PNB scam – Mehul Choksi – suffered a huge setback when the Bombay High Court rejected his plea to stay the special PMLA court proceedings where the ED is seeking to declare him as a ‘fugitive economic offender’.

Liquor baron and former chief of Kingfisher Airlines, Mallya, was declared a ‘fugitive economic offender’ by a Mumbai special court in January this year.

Political parties are currently competing to woo Brahmins. A section of Brahmins are angry with the Yogi government after the encounter of Vikas Dubey and his associates.

To woo this resentment, the first SP announced to install a statue of Parashurama in the state, where was the BSP to stay behind.

BSP chief Mayawati said that we will get more idols of Parashuram than Samajwadi Party.

Mayawati said that with the formation of BSP government in the state, she will install the idol of Lord Parshuram, taking special care of the faith of the Brahmin society.

Apart from this, Mayawati said that Shri Parshuram, a symbol of the faith and self-respect of the Brahmin society in Uttar Pradesh and the great saints, gurus and great men born in all other castes and religions, in the wake of the shortcomings of the central and state governments in the case of Corona epidemic.

A large number of modern hospitals and community centers with all the necessary facilities will be built in the name of stay.

He further said that the matter of installing a high idol of Shri Parashuram by the Samajwadi Party is only electoral interest.

The Brahmin society has full faith in the words and actions of the BSP.

In view of this desire of the Brahmin society, after the formation of the BSP government, the idol of Shri Parashuram will be installed more grand than the SP in every respect.
